Thread: FPrime + HD Instance = Frustration! :-(

    Reconfirmed.... i'd pay both Worley for an upgrade AND buy HDI at once as soon as this feat is implemented.

    I wouldnt think that is a problem..Fprime and HDinstance both atract new customers into LW.

    however, it could be sad if native instancing in LW would put hdinstance out of business, but really, i cant imagine any reason for NT for not helping the development of HDinstance, its a win-win situation for lightwave and newtek.

    I would expect Lw's instancing to be faily basic at introduction. HD Instance is anything but basic, and seeing the features graham has predicted for 2.0, I think there's room for HD instance.
    than again, who knows? Maybe the 9.x instancing will be HD instance. Newtek seems not above aquiring 3rd party tools for implementation in their software. New cameras, nodal, hypervoxels, spreadsheet and so on were all once 3rd party too.
